November, Confetti Wishes!

 Both cards were made using the My Reflections Confetti Wishes paper packet. On the top 4 x 4 card, I used Thistle card stock that I dry embossed using one of the new CTMH embossing folders. I then added the Chalk it Up Assortment, which has many colors of puffy shapes to add to lots projects.
The next card; Celebrate  was cut using the new CTMH Artfully Sent cricut cartridge. I added a few scrap BT behind each letter and then completely covered the back of that with one large piece of White Daisy cs. After that I simply added some cut flowers. Yes! of course cut from new CTMH cs using one of our cartridges. lastly I Liquid Glassed a few CTMH Sparkles to add a little Bling to it  :o)

October Club Tag Tech

This month we tried out Ghost stamping using the tree boarder and small snow flake stamps from the Snowhaven WSOTG stamp set. This adds a little depth to any stamping.
~Using a pigment; ink stamp your image.
~After it drys; stamp your image again with a dye based ink, slightly off set.
*It does not have to be the color of your card stock, this tag just called for that.

It's Holiday card time!

Another Holiday card from the Artfully Sent CTMH cartridge!
